WOKING NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
CAPTURING YOUR PRECIOUS MOMENTS OF LIFE
If you love the beautiful, professional, naturally posed newborn photography, then you are in the right place! As a Surrey newborn photographer, I firmly believe in the ‘less is more’ philosophy, allowing your precious baby to be the focus of every image, with a more minimalistic approach of whites, muted colours, light and shadows.
My newborn photography sessions are in my beautiful studio in Woking, Surrey and are baby led. What ‘baby led’ means for you and your precious little one is that there is no pressure for them to be asleep. If your baby wants to sleep, that’s great. Equally, if they want to be awake for their session because they don’t want to miss out, then that’s okay too! I actually love when babies are awake for some of the session, because it gives me a chance to capture their yawns and stretches and the moment they take a little peek into the world and open their eyes.
Cheryl put us all instantly at ease with her friendliness. The photo shoot was very relaxed and was led by our baby’s needs, meaning that we could easily stop and feed her when needed. The photos that Cheryl took are absolutely stunning and we are delighted with them. So glad that were had a newborn photoshoot with Cheryl and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
YOUR NEWBORN SHOOT
Being a Surrey newborn photographer who offers baby led sessions, makes sure I can provide the best experience for you and your baby and it makes your session much more relaxed and enjoyable. It also means you’re not in the studio for up to 4 hours, like you can be with other newborn photography sessions. If there are little ‘big’ brothers and sisters who will be coming, who prefer to be running around rather than cooped up in a studio, having less time in the studio is absolutely priceless.
My goal as a Surrey baby photographer is to provide you with classic, natural, semi-posed, authentic, timeless images of their little ones, that can be placed with pride on the walls in your home and cherished forever.
The best time for a newborn session is when your baby is between 5-21 days old. However, due to my style of photography I have the ability to photograph babies up to 4 months old.

Cheryl is an amazing photographer and person and made us feel so at ease during our session. Her client wardrobe for both mama and baby is beautiful and our photos came out so so much better than we ever expected! If you are thinking of getting some beautiful memories captured, I would definitely recommend Cheryl as the best person to go to.
The session was brilliant, we are really glad we decided to book this. Cheryl was very patient with our daughter and knew exactly how to keep her entertained for the perfect pictures! (Even manged to get her in the bath without crying, which is a task in itself). The studio itself was very tidy and warm amd had plenty of toys to distract the little one.We got some amazing pictures, and we honestly couldn’t recommend Cheryl enough.
When is the best time to book my session?
After you’ve had your 20 week scan. The best time for the session is when baby is between 7-14 days old. However, due to my style of photography. I can photograph newborns up to 16 weeks.
I only book a limited number of newborn sessions per month, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
How long do the sessions take?
Newborn sessions take between 2-3 hours. Sessions can be quicker than this, it all just depends on baby on the day.
What about the safety of my baby?
Your baby’s safety is my number one priority. My approach to newborns is a more natural and less posed style, so I will never force a baby into any position.
How can I prepare for my session?
Before your session, please feed, wind and change your baby into clothing that is easy to remove. A simple white vest top is a good option.
If there are little ‘big’ brothers/sisters, it’s a good idea to let them know about your upcoming session. Create excitement around it (ask them to practice their best smiles, show them what they will be wearing and ask them what toys they would like to bring to the session to play with when they’re not being photographed.
What should I bring to the session?
Make sure you bring:
- your nappy bag
- extra bottles if you are bottle feeding and
- dummies (if applicable)
- iPad/toys for older siblings to play with when they’re not being photographed
- hairbrush/makeup bag for mum
I provide light snacks and drinks during my sessions, but I always like to suggest bringing a light lunch with you.
What do I wear to the session?
I have a studio Client Wardrobe, with lots of beautiful dresses mums will have access to choose from for your session. This takes the worry out of trying to find something to wear.
My photography style is light and airy, so if you would like to wear something of your own, I suggest light, neutral colours – whites, creams, greys, light/muted colours. This applies to clothing for the rest of the family too.
Think coordinating, not matching. Incorporate colours that fit well together. You will receive a What to Wear Guide when you have booked in.
Do you work weekends?
Yes, I work on Saturdays.
Occasionally I will work on a Sunday, but try to keep this day for time with my own family.
Do you take family and sibling shots during the session?
Definitely! This is what makes the session such a treasured moment.
Can we bring our family dog to the session?
Yes, I love when furry family members come along to the session, so always welcome well behaved dogs to the studio!
As I have babies and pregnant mums in the studio who might have pet allergies, I always organise a cleaner to do a deep clean of the studio after sessions with fur babies. So there is an additional fee of £25 to cover this cost.
